Environmental Site Assessments

Phase 1

  • Conducted to determine the presence of hazardous waste/petroleum products and evaluate any likely environmentally hazardous site history.
  • Certified in strict accordance with E1527-13, ASTM Standards of Practice
  • An investigation of the current and past uses of the property, back to at least 1941, to determine if there are any conditions (REC’s) that are indicative of releases of petroleum or hazardous material at the site, now or in the past.
  • Site examination, review of historical data, examination of adjoining sites and interviews with key personnel with site knowledge.

Phase 2 (Perform Limited Phase 2)

  • Typically, if the Phase 1 ESA determines a likelihood of site contamination, an intrusive investigation is conducted which collects samples of soil, groundwater, and/or building materials to analyze the quantitative values of various contaminants.

Reserve Studies

The Reserve Study consists of the Physical Analysis and the Financial Analysis. The Physical Analysis assesses the current condition and repair or replacement cost of the major common area components the association is obligated to maintain. The Financial Analysis contains an evaluation of the association’s Reserve balance (measured by Percent Funded) and a recommended Funding Plan to offset the anticipated replacement cost of the major common area components the association is obligated to maintain.

Reserve Study: It’s the LAW

Reserve Studies are required per the Condominium Act (55-79.39) and the Property Owners’ Association Act (55-514.1) at least every five (5) years with an annual review. We are here to help you stay in compliance with this law.

Donofrio & Associates, LLC. has a unique Reserve Study System that provides a cost-effective and easy to interpret report, providing a powerful and valuable tool for building/property managers and owners.

We will provide an analysis and spreadsheet detailing immediate needs and projected reserve requirements for periods of 10, 20, or 30 Years.

    The staff at Donofrio & Associates was very professional and helpful in setting up my home inspection. My inspector was also thoroughly professional, courteous, and engaging throughout his inspection, pointing out everything that he … More found during the inspection, familiarizing me with all aspects of a newly purchased house, and making recommendations on maintenance items associated with the house. Highly recommend.

    Bryan is friendly and professional. I really like that he came to the house early and start working right away. The report with all the details I need to talk to the builder was provided just a few hours after we met. Super fast! I will … More definitely work with him for the next inspection when the house is completed. Thanks Bryan !
